classic cars in the West Midlands for hire?
May 13, 2014 4:10 PM   Subscribe

The older boy wants a classic car for prom in Staffordshire near Wolverhampton. I found Kitt for £250 for five hours, but it didn't have back seats. The only car available from one classic car website I found is a 1979 Austin Allegro for £300 for the day. Hugely wrong on so many levels. How can I find a classic car in the West Midlands for a middle of the week prom in June?

Would a 2CV be acceptable?

Have you tried messaging someone on a relevant classic car board? Something like Pistonheads perhaps.

Have you tried The Open Road? They have a branch in Warwickshire.

Certainly there should be a Morgan available somewhere around there.

If not a 2CV, then last time I looked, there were plenty of Citroën DSes and Traction Avants available in the South West. Hopefully the West Midlands has similar.

Self Drive Classics seem to cover the West Midlands.
